    Edited by James H. Steele. Recommendations: WHEREAS, rabies has become established and appears to be spreading through the upper Mississippi and Missouri Valleys and so constitutes a serious threat to human health, agricultural economy, and wildlife resources of this area, representatives of the affected States and the personnel' of responsible Federal agencies met at Omaha, Nebraska, on May 21-22, 1951, and in closing agreed as follows: 1. That each of the affected States inaugurate coordinated programs for the control of rabies; that each State's program can most effectively be carried out through the creation of a committee composed of representatives from those agencies at the State level responsible for public health, livestock disease control, and wildlife conservation; 2. That each State arrange for adequate diagnostic facilities, and that reports of rabies cases in animals be collected by an approved State agency, and that the State health officer include these data in the weekly telegraphic reports to the U. S. Public Health Service; 3. That the epizootiology of rabies in wildlife is inadequately understood, and to urge that investigation of this subject be made to provide information necessary for the intelligent and effective control of this disease; 4. That technical assistance and guidance is available from the U. S. Public Health Service of the Federal Security Agency, the Fish and Wildlife Service of the Department of the Interior, and the Bureau of Animal Industry of the U. S. Department of Agriculture.
